What Makes Me Happy?

That's the title of my novel layout for the weekly challenge at The Boxx done in Louise style.

The challenge, by Leeann, was...
I would like to see a shaped circle scallop,bracket etc
Little pics
distressing and inking
and some bling bling

I didn't answer the question because there are too many things to list.

Here's a little thing that made me very happy. When I went outside to photograph this layout Hudson followed me with a stripey bag full of tea set things. He was chatting away to himself and singing.

"Shoo be doo de do. I'm having a picnic. Yep. I'll put that there. La di da di dah"

I stuck my layout on the bench, photographed it, took it off the bench and headed inside.

"La di da di dah. I've finished now. Shoo be doo de do. Let's just put it all back in the bag. Yeah. Hey! Open the door for me!"

Too bad I didn't get a video of the whole thing. It really was a vignette of Hudson's personality. (NB Vignette is my word of the moment.)

Products:Bazzill Kraft (YAY!); Zig Writer; Stazon; Making Memories Acrylic Paint; Making Memories Colored Staples; PaperMate Liquid Paper; Doodlebug Boutique Trims; Bo Bunny Bodacious Brads; KaiserCraft Rhinestones; Unibal Signo Gel Pen.

I forgot to say...

The photos are selfies of me saying "what makes me happy" I only put 5 on the layout but I took 9 and I reckon my Mum could tell what I was saying if she flicked through the photos. Sophie-Lee could tell the 'happy' bit!


I had my hair cut yesterday. It is rare for me to have a change of hairstyle but that is what I did yesterday. I found a picture of a hairstyle I thought could work, asked my hairdresser if she could do it, she studied the photo, and had a go. The result...

This is what it looked like yesterday. It may never look like that again - well, technically, it won't because it is growing, but you know what I mean.

You are so ..."beautiful" in your new hairstyle. Yes it is a pity there is no video record of Hudson's participation in your photographic session. Clever idea using photos of you saying the words.
